Trae Elston, a cornerback from Oxford, Alabama, is going from one Oxford to another.

Elston announced on Wednesday morning in a televised press conference that he'd be going to Ole Miss, giving new head coach Hugh Freeze an excellent addition on the defensive side of the ball. Elston made the announcement by pulling off his jacket to reveal a white shirt and red tie before putting on his Ole Miss hat.

The three-star prospect is ranked at #122 in the 2012 recruiting class by MaxPreps. 

Elston stands at 6-feet tall and weighs 180 pounds. He was a high school teammate of Kwon Alexander, who announced he'd be attending LSU a few minutes before Elston made his announcement.
